Certifications HomeCounter-Insider Threat



Due to COVID-19 the June 2020 CCITP testing session will no longer proceed as scheduled.  The registration window will remain open indefinitely and we are actively engaged with Pearson Vue, our test delivery partner, to identify alternatives to allow testing to proceed as soon as possible.  We will be posting updates on this website as we have new information, and you can always contact the PMO at OSD.CINT-Certification@mail.mil if you have any questions.  Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this time.​


In 2010, Executive Order 13587 established the requirement for all USG Executive Agencies to establish an Insider Threat Program. The Executive Order also established the National Insider Threat Task Force, co-led by the ODNI and DoJ, and the minimum standards by which an Insider Threat program would be deemed operational.


The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, in partnership with the National Insider Threat Task Force, focused on the people-related aspect of the Counter-Insider Threat (C-InT) capability, and created two C-InT Professional Certifications.  These certifications were developed with maximum participation from across the US Government, resulting in broad applicability across C-InT workforces. 

  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Fundamentals (CCITP-F): This certification establishes a common standard of fundamental knowledge and skills required of all who serve and support the C-InT capability. This certification focuses on the understanding of insider threat program mission, policies, and basic operations.
  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Analysis (CCITP-A):  This certification establishes a common standard of analytic tradecraft of all who serve and support the C-InT capability; it focuses on the analysis of insider threat-relevant information, and development of mitigation recommendations.
Initial conferral of CCITP certifications were issued February 20, 2020. Subject Matter Experts who participated in exam development along with individuals who met all certification requirements should have received an email regarding how to access your digital badge and printable certificate. If you have not received this communication, please email the PMO at OSD.CINT-Certification@mail.mil. ​


NO SHOW POLICY: If a candidate does not cancel or reschedule a confirmed exam at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled exam and does not show up for their scheduled exam, the USG will still be charged an exam seat fee as if the candidate sat for the exam.  PLEASE make every effort to make your scheduled exam date or reschedule in time to meet the Pearson VUE Deadline.  If an individual is a no-show for two exam iterations, he or she will not be able to participate in the CCITP program.  Individuals may appeal by submitting a waiver request explaining why they were unable to make scheduled exam sessions.
